“Lavrov noted importance of soonest settlement of all issues related with delivery of Russian humanitarian convoy, which was created in co-operation with Ukrainian authorities and the International Committee of the Red Cross, on the territory of Ukraine,” Russian diplomatic agency said. “This was admitted that all effort should be taken to ensure a safe and urgent relief delivery to affected regions, focusing on ensuring security of the humanitarian action, including declaration of a ceasefire between the conflicting parties for the period of the humanitarian operation,” the ministry said.
Meanwhile, Lavrov and Steinmeier discuss practical ways to fulfil measures “which actually should result in a stable end to military actions in southeast Ukraine, long-term resolution of humanitarian problems and the start of inclusive dialogue on political settlement of the Ukrainian crisis on the basis of the April 17 Geneva statement and the July 2 Berlin declaration.”
Germany initiated the telephone conversation.
